Dear Tomoo,

Thank you for your proposals for new cloud feedback standard names. I
agree that the wording of the names is fine.  I assume that
'cloud_microphysics' is the sum of many of the processes such as
bergeron-findeison, heterogeneous and homogeneous nucleation, etc., but
does it also include evaporation/condensation for example?  If you could
list which processes are included in cloud_microphysics that would be
very helpful for writing the definitions of the names.

Best wishes,
Alison
